A great beer with a light hop finish. The only ’average’ thing about this beer is its orange-y appearance.

Nice local brew. I like the aromatic hoppy flavor and find it quite refreshing. Too bad it occasionally gives me a headache... maybe they are brewing this with Atlanta’s god awful municipal water?

Great beer. If you volunteer at the brewery in ATL, you receive free beers for your work.

Deep gold with thick beige head, citrus hop aromas leaping out. Nice woody malt backbone holds up well against medium bitterness and grapefruit tang. Playful carbonation through medium-light body. Well balanced malt, hops and mouthfeel. Excellent pale ale!

First off, what ever roder60 is drinking it aint the right beer ( danm the steelers too). This beer is great, drinkable, flavorful, complex, callled 420. If you don’t like this beer, you are not a good beer drinker. And it’s not just the sotherner in me, this brew has everything in balance, such is the subtle art of the Sweetwater brewers. Yall just try it!
